I noticed that you can see the haunted look on some visitor's faces, and the trepidation with which they step out of their cars and into our world. I don't want to ever live in a world where it is OK...

Glad to know that Hawk Vittles is still on the go. I think my last shipment was a couple years ago. They have accompanied me many places. They were a very big hit at the campground in Desert Trip...

Don't I know it (muscle aches). I've been fighting a neck injury for a year which is finally better (I think). I'm now a year older and even more out of shape than when I started, which at my best...
